COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – The Community Foundation of the Chattahoochee Valley is hosting an On the Table event for citizens to let their voices be heard.
This event will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 7, and all community members are invited to participate. Locations are available during the morning, afternoon and evening all throughout the Chattahoochee Valley.
Some public locations will have broad discussions about the community while others have chosen to chat about a particular topic.
It was a diverse group of people, from recent drug addicts and graduates of the Valley Rescue Mission addiction recovery program to Muscogee County's Marshal, pastors, plus high school and college students.
The topic is something that directly impacts one in every three families.
Valley Rescue Mission offers free drug recovery programs.
"On The Table" is an initiative by The Community Foundation, funded by The Knight Foundation. The slogan for this year is "Your Voice Matters."
"We are so thrilled with how many tables people and organizations are offering," Betsy Covington said, president and CEO of the Community Foundation. "It's super buy-in, and these are great opportunities for anyone who is looking for a table to join. Public conversations offer a chance to make new connections and talk about how we can make our community even better."
